Which optional subjects to opt for main exam?


I have done my B.Com with Financial Accounting as my 1st optional subject in Fifteenth.I did my M.Com with Management as my optional subject.
I will be appearing for IAS Preliminary Exams in May . If I clear the Preliminary Exam, I qualify to appear for Main Exams which will be held in October-November

My question is, Which two optional subjects should I opt for my Main Exams?

Please help me, I am very confused.

You need to select based on where your strength lies. It is advisable to choose scoring subjects i.e. those which involve calculations. Since you are from commerce background you can choose from subjects like Management, Mathematics, Economics, Commerce and Accountancy.

HELLO,although chosing optional subject is totally depends on your interest,knowledge in that field & current situations of the field.if you have accounting as an 1st optional subject then no problem,you have to study the subject thoroughly.you can opt 'public administration' as your 2nd optional subject becouse the syllabus for this is not so much vast & it's easy to relate with the society and reality.afterall choice is yours.

Hello,
I am Madhukiran. I have done BE(Computer science Engineering) and currently working in a MNC as a software Engineer. I want to serve as IAS officer, For preparation i have time constraints because of job. I want to select Telugu Literature and Geography/ Public Administration /Anthropology as Optionals.
so please tell me which pair of subjects should i take ,so that i can study in short span of time.?
i chose above subjects because I have Telugu medium back ground up to 10th so i may easily cope up with telugu. I though of Geography becaue it also use ful in General studies preparation.Even I though of maths but i came t know that these days it is not doing well.Thats why i have droped maths.

Am i approaching in proper way? .. please guide me.

Any kind of Suggestions are welcome even you can suggeest me other subjects. As I am a SC candidate. Please mention cut off for SC students(approximately) and Success ratio for optionals sunjects.

Thanks & kind Regards

Madhu

you, can surely choose financial management and accounting and economics as the second choice, but you will have to be thorough with the subject!
And, it's also a good choice to opt for them as they are scoring subjects as well.
But, be conscious while choosing them and see to it, that you have touch with these subjects or much better to have a background of commerce or economics in your previous studies!
And, the sole decision lies in your hands!!
GOOD LUCK!
